in gaza, president obama's top diplomat at the u.n. is facing angry politics in washington. susan rice, the president's u.n. ambassador and a leading candidate to replace clinton at the state department, has been subject to withering and sometimes outlandish attacks from a wide range of republicans. senators john mccain and lindsey graham, two foreign policy leaders have slammed rice for her initial comments about the source of the libya attacks with mccain threatening to filibuster if he's nominated. many other republicans have joined in. 97 members of the house sent the president a letter monday opposing rice. now president obama is not backing down. the white house has confirmed it's still considering promoting rice and last week the president said if mccain and graham want to go after someone, they should go after him. rice was not exactly a household name during obama's first term. but all this heat from the political players is drawing some media fire. "the new york times" maureen dowd has knocked rice as an unsavvy washington player. while the "times" editorial page came out wit
. now moving on to america's u.n. ambassador susan rice, she is one of president obama's top candidates to be the next secretary of state but some republican senators have vowed to block her nomination they accuse rice of being misleading about the september attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. as you recall, ambassador christopher stevens and three other americans were killed there. our state department correspondent margaret brennan has new information on why rice said what she said. margaret? >> reporter: good evening, scott. a government official tells us that references to al qaeda and terrorism were cut from the talking points by the intelligence community, not the white house or the state department. the edits came from the office of the director of national intelligence-- d.n.i.-- with the agreement of the c.i.a. and the f.b.i. u.n. ambassador susan rice relied on those talking points during an appearance on "face the nation" on september 16 in which she called the benghazi attacks a spontaneous demonstration by extremists not an act of terrorism. >> we do not have i
't heard john mccain or lindsey grame say susan rice should not be secretary of state if president obama wants her to be. >> and california congress welcome karen bass also ratzed concerns about the opposition to susan rice. >> this really compromises us and makes us look ridiculous i believe internationally because as far as i'm concerned, again, this is my colleagues on the other side of the aisle that are still recovering from november 6th. the election is over. >> chip, is it fair? what's going on here with this opposition? >> well, unfortunately, i think this has a little bit to do with politics on both sides, and it's always kind of funny to watch both parties after an election when they go after the other one's nominees and go this is all politics, this is terrible, and yet when they're on the opposite side they do the same thing. senator mccain and senator graham certainly have points they'll discus during the nomination process. susan rice is not the nominee to be the next united states secretary of state. and when that process happens, i think the senate will do its job through
foreign policy adviser to barack obama in 2008. presidential campaign, rice took a disparaging view of obama's republican opponent in the campaign, john mccain, calling his policies reckless. and dismissing the arizona senator's trip to iraq as strolling around the market in a flack jacket. that's why the angriest little elf is the angriest, bitterest little elf ever. >> a leprechaun, not an elf. >> stephanie: sorry. >> select committee, if appointed, clears her of any wrong doing besides not being very bright because it was obvious that this was not a quote flash mob, there was no demonstration, charlie. there was none there. >> you were there? you saw all of this? >> stephanie: yeah. you know, you thought after the election result, there would be a reality check on the other side. you said fox news has dropped this. >> yeah. >> stephanie: is john mccain of ever admitting he was wrong whether it is on don't ask don't tell? >> he's famous for never admitting he's wrong. >> stephanie: the ship has sailed. wh
, president obama's national security guy who is saying, oh, it's me. i sent rice out there and i took out all the al-qaeda stuff. i'm not buying it. none of this adds up. mccain isn't buying it. are you buying it? >> i'm not buying it because the chairman of the house intelligence committee said a week ago in classified testify that same clapper said that they had no idea who changed the talking points and now a week later he is saying did he? that's kind of strange. >> there is a lot of lying going on here. >> i mean, i've seen am amnesiay in my clinical days and that one is pretty quick. >> alisyn: he's not saying -- his office is saying. it could be another case of who in the office did it. another game of clue. >> steve: some in washington on the rye feel he's just the latest fall guy for the white house. >> alisyn: we will keep you posted on all that throughout the show. let's get to your headlines. we have breaking details in search for a serial killer. police in new york city are interrogating a man in connection to this case. the man is apparently a salesman who peddles clothing from
rice failed to do something. and this is where the obama administration has leaved himself exposed. he never went to israel. i think now is probably not the time to get involved there but i think he's going to have to, in the second term, especially if these incidents show, they're going to try to do some middle east peace deal again. >> yeah, i mean you know, in addition to all of this which is a much more local conversation, we need to think in a broader sense. there's no big international moral voice on this question and i think until we have that kind of unquestionable, moral voice with an honest broker as well as a spiritual dimension this isn't going to get resolved by different types of policies. the record is clear. >> tim mak i want to ask you does the president see this as an opportunity to be the moral voice that tricia rose just talked to? >> if he does see the opportunity, he isn't really seizing on it. you haven't really seen him going out-front on the issue. you do see him giving speeches. you se
his opinion on the libyan situation. now it's james clapper, president obama's national security guy who is saying, oh, it's me. i sent rice out there and i took out all the al-qaeda stuff. i'm not buying it. none of this adds up. mccain isn't buying it. are you buying it? >> i'm not buying it because the chairman of the intelligence committee said a week ago in classified testimony that same clapper said that they had no idea who changed the talking points and now a week later he says he did? that's kind of strange. >> bill: a lot of lying going on here. >> i mean, i've seen amnesia in my day in my clinical days and that one is pretty quick of the one week. >> bill: okay. again, i know you don't play a psychiatrist on tv, but there has got to be a reason behind this. any theory on what's behind this crazy stuff? , this there are a lot of theories, burr all i know is that in the ends, the narrative spun by susan rice and continued by the president afterwards for days and days afterwards on letterman and elsewhere was that it was a riot out of control because they didn't want the coun
there is a lot being talked about with susan rice. 97 colleagues wrote a letter to president obama urging him not necessarily to push her nomination forward if it were to come up for secretary of state. do you think that that letter is based on racism and sexism? >> i think there are multiple issues and probably not. and i do think the letter is interesting. we started circulating a letter, too, and within 24 hours got over 60 signatures. and when we get started again, i know we can go above that. it makes no sense to have signature gathering wars from the house when we have no say over the nomination but, you know, i think about it this way. our ambassador who is still the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. is in the middle of dealing with the gaza crisis, the crisis in syria, the crisis in iran, the crisis in the congo. she is still our u.s. representative. and, to me, this really compromises us and makes us look ridiculous, i believe internationally. as far as i'm concerned, again, these are my colleagues on the other side of the aisle still recovering from november 6. the election is over. t pet
but the country a top drawer, a top diplomat to face the word. now it's up to president obama to do it again. he's won a second term and he needs to make it great. naming john kerry fits that bill. picking susan rice would be good. picking kerry would be better. the secretary of state stands alone had history, holding the most stature but for the president himself. ker are ry won 252 electoral votes against the sitting chief executive, a war time president at that. a leading critic of the war latinoer, a five-time sort the heavyweight that obama picked the first time. i say this even as i detest the lynch mob that's thrown itself together for ambassador susan rice. they are precisely the same as those used in the swift voting to keep john kerry from the presidency. they attack her for her early explanation of the horror of benghazi when the real complaint is something that she had nothing to do about, the death of our ambassador chris stevens. the real complaint was his opposition to the vietnam war on his return. swift voting is now sadly a practiced art. it's character assassination with a hea
they were going to explain it that way. i would ask susan rice between 9/11 and your appearance on those five sunday talk shows, did you talk to president obama? did you talk to the national security advisor? did you talk to valerie jarret or david axelrod? follow the trail but look at the bigger picture. >> here is the biggest picture. the guy who made this video that the administration blames for benghazi attacks came from egypt coming here in the hope he could say what he really thought does so and winds up in jail. there he is now. why is he being defended by anyone. he is in jail because of a video he made? >> we do know that secretary clinton told the father of one of the dead americans, don't worry, we're going to get this guy. the notion they have been focused on the video, focused on the maker of the video, again this isn't just a policy difference. this is situation where al-qaeda attacked us on 9/11 and we were misled by the president and secretary of state. >> coming up, you can count on debbie wasserman schultz to throw out some lines. the new crop of republicans in congress

fit into the left fingernail of dr. susan rice. but beyond intelligence, there's a racial hostility that's unchecked here. and the aggression toward people of color here has been unleashed as a kind of compensatory aggression against obama's win. you see all this stuff going on. this is racial code words and we know the manipulation of racial feeling and sentiment here. >> nobody in the intelligence community has come out and said these things about rice. karen, what about this? why is she a target? >> i worked with dr. rice in the clinton administration. she is a brilliant woman and a gifted diplomat. so take that off the table. here's the thing. even if the republicans are too stupid to understand that after having just lost an election largely because of -- they lost the woman vote, they lost the young vote, they lost the african-american vote, that taking on a woman of this level of credentials in a hearing with mostly white men, a relatively young african-american woman, it's just a bad idea. and particularly given that she is very well qualified and given that these are also p
